Why Can't I Just Run It Smoothly, Am I Far Off The Specs?



I have a Dell Dimension 3100 and it's specifications are located here - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3100/en/sm/specs0.htm#wp1052310


IMPORTANT INFO - I have upgraded to 3GB's of RAM and I am running on Windows 7 Ultimate.


I know it says 2GB's of RAM is the maximum but I had 2 in and then put the extra 1GB's of RAM in and there was such a significant speed difference. (It was running on 2.50GB for 4 years before I even added the extra 0.50GB's extra and the 0.50GB's was a significant speed change also!)

So Why is it that I can't record in DIVX? or the speed of sound and video will be sped up and recording in AVI is quite bad quality and the sound is very choppy?


What is the problem and in what ways can I fix it?

Thanks in advance!
